New York: George Dearborn, 1834. Hardcover. This publication of Burke's work is uncommon. Edmund Burke (1729 - 1797), an Irish statesman who served in the House of Commons of Parliament for many years. The foundation of this collection of Burke's works comes from the 1792 printing for Mr. Dodsley, with printing errors from that edition corrected. This publication also includes (in the third volume) his collected letters, tracts intended for private circulation, and other papers that were discovered posthumously - collected here and published for the first time. It does not include several posthumous publications. His writings (in Volume I) are short tracts which often read as personal observations - which he makes on poetry, beauty, emotions, power, light, the body, and more. Volume II contains letters, his abridgement of English History, and writings on legal matters. Volume III contains government reports including the internal trade of Bengal, articles relating to the Warren Hastings trial and impeachment, and more. Each volume is bound in full tan leather covered boards with gilt title and volume labels to the spines. Browning to spines, wear, chips, and rubbing to boards, spines, edges, and corners. Cracks to leather on spine labels and chips to spine ends. Marbled endpapers and full marbled edges. Bookplate of William R. Jewett to all three volumes.
